Disinformation on the Web


Sure, the web is full of information, but it also has lots of false information. How do you tell the difference? This program looks at the problem of disinformation on the internet. Robert Schafer shows us csicop.org, a site that features the Skeptical Inquirer, an online journal which debunks phoney online stories. John Whalen demonstrates conspire.com, a site that focuses on real and surreal conspiracy theories. David Mikkelson runs urbanlegends.com, another site devoted to debunking fake stories circulated on the web. Richard Metzger demonstrates disinfo.com. Shot on location at the CyberSmith internet cafe in Palo Alto, California. Hosts are Jane Wither, Andrew deVries, and Stewart Cheifet. Originally broadcast in 1997.
